Blood donor clinic Tuesday an opportunity to give the gift of life

A single donation of blood can save up to three lives. Students, staff and faculty are all invited to give that gift of life as the Canadian Blood Services holds a full blood donor clinic Tuesday, February 7, in Ambassador Auditorium in the CAW Student Centre from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

For this clinic, Canadian Blood Services will use its appointment system. It encourages donors to book appointments by calling 1-888-2DONATE (1-888-236-6283). Walk-in donors are still welcome but appointments will better accommodate donors' working schedules.

As with previous clinics, the Department of Human Resources encourages all eligible employees to participate in this worthwhile process and asks any employees who wish to donate to make the necessary arrangements with their supervisors regarding the possibility of extended lunch or break periods. Canadian Blood Services thanks the university community for its continued support.
